Deepa Mehta To Adapt “Secret Daughter”

Canadian director Deepa Mehta (“Midnight’s Children”) is set to helm an adaptation of Shilpi Somaya Gowda’s novel “Secret Daughter” at Silent Joe Inc. and Mongrel Media.

The story follows two families, one in Mumbai forced to give a baby up for adoption, and another in San Francisco raising a brown-skinned child from another culture.

Mehta is penning the script, while Jody Colero and Hussain Amarshi will produce.
